Indian born and settled in Austin,Texas. I have been painting since childhood but recently endeavoring art as a career. I discovered myself while taking a course in oil painting which I joined in order to enrich my learning experience. I further educated myself by painting and reading numerous books on painting. Each painting I create allows me to grow, and I intend my painting to be a never-ending progression. I try to work towards one goal; that my art should not only look appealing or entertaining, but inspires and enhances life physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. For me, creativity and art are the essence and flow of life. New areas of interest keep arising and lead to the next body of work. My influences are first and foremost everything I see, feel and experience.
Beginning a new painting always fill me with a sense of excitement. A painting is almost a living thing as it evolves. Love hearing people talk about how they find something new and interesting and enlightening in it every time they look at my paintings.
I have sold my work to private collectors in India, US and Canada. I have also auctioned my paintings at local fundraisers. To market my art I exhibit in local art shows and also use online resources like my website, Facebook, Houzz, FineArtAmerica, Red bubble to name a few.
I am in a constant state of gratefulness where I am and to where I am heading.
